UniNet (Hawthorne, CA) has announced the expansion of its iColor Transfer Media line of products to now include Metallic iColor Presto! Transfer Papers for hard surfaces and textiles. Available in gold, silver and bronze, the transfer sheets are compatible with UniNet iColor Digital Transfer Printers, as well as a variety of monochrome, white toner, CMYK Laser/LED printers and copiers. Users simply print using black toner to produce metallic self-weeding transfers for a wide variety of applications.

Designed to further enhance the product capabilities of iColor Transfer Printers, the iColor Presto! Metallic Hard Surface 1-Step Transfer Media allows users to create “clean and crisp” designs for pressing onto ceramic, glass, mirrors, metal, acrylic, wood, cardboard, paper and more. Popular markets include personalized gifts and souvenirs, home décor, signage, promotional products and events. The new iColor Presto! 2-Step Textile Transfer Media provides users the ability to produce metallic transfers for light and dark coloured textiles such as cotton, polyester, 50/50, polypropylene, felt and more. No cutting or weeding is required after pressing, and items are wash-tested up to 30 washes at 104°F (40°C), so the metallic images “will remain durable and vibrant.” UniNet is a worldwide OEM with over 25 years’ experience in the imaging industry. The company has sales, service and distribution networks on every continent.
